Los Angeles Railway Car 665 - Los Angeles Railway Car #665 represents the Los Angeles Railway's largest class of streetcars, the Type B or "Huntington Standard". Designed by the L.A. Railway in 1902, this class of wood-bodied city cars bore the name of the system's owner, Henry E. Huntington (of Huntington Library, Beach and Drive fame). This was the type of car that Los Angeles grew up with; at one time there were 747 of them roaming the streets of L.A. - retired in 1948. (Information from OERM Web Site) A special thanks to Steve Crise for his time, expertise and the use of his equipment, without which this image would have looked very different. This is the photo that was being staged in this shot on Rail Pictures.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads at sundown or in the light of sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
